For the second year, here is the Casey Station resupply timelapse, in Antarctica.
Just a quick little request for those who have an Instagram account, Follow me!
Here are a few of the latest posts:
📷🐘 Elephant Seals. Browning Peninsula, Antarctica. I found these guys again this year down at their landing spot on the coast. They hang on the rocks all day and sleep, looking so relaxed. They only move to reshuffle and occasionally yawn like in this image. Such gentle giants on land. Probably killers in the water. #aad #antarctica #antarctic #adventure #earth #explore #expedition #exploration #travel #photography #photo #life #nature #wildlifephotography #world #wildlife #seal #elephantseal #globalwarming #climatechange #canon @canonaustralia @bestintravel @lonelyplanet @natgeotravel @natgeo #canonaustralia
Monsters of the Deep.
During my time down at Casey Station in Antarctica this season, i got to go out on a ‘burg cruise’ in the IRB’s. A trip on the boats to drive around some of the giants in the southern ocean. These iceburgs are huge from a distance and massive up close. They are big on top of the water and monsters under the surface. Some are grounded and dont move for years. Others float back and forth daily. Overall it was such a amazing experience i will never forget.
Here are some photos i got from my GoPro camera half underwater trying to show the size of them. The last is from the Canon showing what it looks like on top. Remember 10% on top 90% underneath.
I have so many photos of Adélie Penguins it’s becoming a problem. I don’t have enough time to go through the Gigabites of photo files of these guys. They are comical on land, majestic in the water and sometimes fly through the air.
And yet, i can’t get enough of them.
It’s happening again. I’ve made the trip down to Casey Station for another summer in Antarctica.
We flew down a few days ago on a government Airbus A319. From Hobart to Wilkins Aerodrome, 70 kms from Casey. Inside, it’s not your usual commercial airplane. Some seats are missing for more moving around room, the cockpit is open and you can go hang out with the pilots and 40 minutes from landing on the ice we put on our full survival gear ready to step out into -15c degree temperatures.
I’ve just finished a few weeks of training at the Australian Antarctic Division in Hobart, Tasmania. Here are a few pics snapped on the Iphone while finding my way around the place. Some are of the vehicles that will be down south, depending on the station.
We are due to fly down to Wilkins runway and onto Casey Station tomorrow morning.
